Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where do we depart from? We depart from Steamers Quay in Woodquay just a short walk from the city centre. The old railway line is a local landmark.

  • Where can I Park? Parking is limited around Woodquay and is mainly for residents. There are two large car parks within a 10 minute walk of our set off point. One at the Cathedral and one on the Dyke Road. Please note these are pay and display car parks so make sure you get your ticket.

  • What clothing should I wear? The west of Ireland is famous for its changeable weather and as such we advise that people dress appropriately and bring rain gear. As our boat is open to the elements there is a possibility that you get wet however we try our best to only conduct tours on days where there is less of a chance of rain. We can supply basic rain ponchos if needed.
